With touring out of the question for the foreseeable future, the Flaming Lips decided to draw on their experience using large plastic bubbles to stage a show in their hometown of Oklahoma City.
Each bandmember was encased in their own bubble as were each member of the audience. (Couples should share one.) Overall effect was kinda surreal, but at least no one was exposed to any stray COVID-19 viruses.
Wayne Coyne had this to say: “Of course, our MAIN priority (when doing the performance for the music video) was making sure everyone was safe and all the health cautions were being enforced. I forgot about how exciting and fun and ridiculous it is to do a Flaming Lips show!!! I think the video shows it!!!”
Part of the show featured a new song called “Assassins of Youth.” It looked like this.
